    There are plenty of tradesmen out there, but finding a good one is like looking for a needle in a haystack. At MyBuilder, we take the hassle out of finding the right tradesman with our unique matchmaking system. Once a job is posted, we alert relevant tradesmen and those interested get in touch. You see full work history and customer feedback comments, helping you choose the best builder for your job.

    And if you think life is any easier for builders looking for work, think again. Finding clients can seem like an impossible task and traditional advertising and directories almost never work. The trades need to focus on doing great work for their customers, without having to worry about where the next job will come from. MyBuilder’s feedback system means that today's client helps MyBuilder tradesmen win tomorrow's work.

    We’re a market leader in the UK and are part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Tripadvisor, Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.). MyBuilder operates throughout the UK.

    Our technology

    Our focus is to produce high quality, well-tested code which not only keeps us happy and productive but also helps the business (and our customers) succeed.

    Our development process has been honed through exploring various flavours of agile and we believe that our way of working helps us get the right things done at the right time. We usually work in a Kanban/ticket-style and deploy a new release of the main website few times a week or more, and it’s entirely ordinary to have something you’ve worked on be put live on the same day.

    We practice clean code and have been using DDD at MyBuilder for more than 4 years.

    We have open sourced some of our useful tools and happily contribute back to other projects we use.

    We also blog about our thoughts and ideas

    What new hires say about us

    "MyBuilder offered me a great opportunity: be the first data-focussed person in a fast-moving company with a fascinating business domain. After a wonderfully welcoming first month I’ve wrestled with challenges, found impactful insights from the data and I’m still trying to see just how deep this business goes. I’m glad I joined on here."

    "From my first interview I noticed MyBuilder was a really customer focused company. Less than a month in, I have already had the opportunity to officially interview our customers and given the works currently going on in the office - have daily interactions with real users of the site. I have been loving working for a company that has a clear vision, where people are collaborative and get things done."
